TIMUCUAN SCIENCE & HISTORY SYMPOSIUM

HISTORIC RIBAULT CLUB ON FORT GEORGE ISLAND

“Connect with and create the next generation of park scientists, historians and researchers.”

Cultural and natural resources have a shared history of over 6,000 years within Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve. The interaction between nature and humans is evident…from the spoil islands to the altered wetlands, from the shell middens of the Theodore Roosevelt Area to the tabby structures of Kingsley Plantation and from the boat docks of neighboring subdivisions to the introduction of exotic animals and plants. Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve is a place where natural and cultural resources connect.

The Science and History Symposium is a place to:

  • Connect natural and cultural researchers, community residents, and National Park Service personnel at Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve
  • Identify partners for conducting research within the Preserve
  • Share success stories of researchers who have contributed to the management and interpretation of the Preserve’s resources
  • Communicate about the resources, research opportunities, and protocols of the Preserve.

Location: Ribault Club, 11241 Fort George Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32226
